Brooklyn Poets Reading Series (In-Person & Virtual)

Named one of the best reading series in NYC by Time Out New York, the Brooklyn Poets Reading Series takes place six times a year and is free and open to the public. Each reading features three poets, with at least one from Brooklyn and one from outside the borough, pairing emerging with more established poets and focusing on those from underrepresented communities. Our Brooklyn Book Festival Bookend reading will feature Wo Chan, Tawanda Mulalu, and Sarah Ruhl. This in-person event will also be livestreamed via Zoom. All guests—in-person and virtual—should register in the ‘Learn more & register’ link below.

Location: 144 Montague Street, Brooklyn, NY 11201
